We have an application that runs in full screen mode for public display, so having the status bar pop-up at the bottom of the screen is distracting when it moves between pages is distracting and detracts from the user experience. How do I disable the status bar so that it no longer pops up when the browser is in full screen mode?

Chosen solution

Or do you mean the floating message that describes the current activity of the browser (for example, Waiting...) or shows the URL of the currently hovered link?

That can be suppressed using custom style rules. Here is an example of a past thread on how you might do that:

How do I disable the link address popup at bottom of the page?

That was as of Firefox 25. Does it still work in Firefox 30?

Hmm, Firefox 29 and higher do not have a status bar. Is it something created by an add-on?
